Manchester United’s Top Four confirmation will wait until May as they were held to 0-0 draw away at rivals Leeds.

Results elsewhere this weekend mean Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side need just one more win to seal a Champions League spot but they were unable to rubber stamp that thanks to a drab meeting in Yorkshire.

And the final result reflected the performance at Elland Road as despite an age old rivalry between these two enemies the match itself failed to catch fire.

Neither side created much in the opening 45 as Illan Meslier made routine stops from Mason Greenwood and Dan James before the French keeper kept out Marcus Rashford’s free kick just before the break.

That pattern of inconsistency continued once again after the break as Portuguese star Bruno Fernandes thumped a great chance just wide of the post.

Solskjaer opted to throw on Paul Pogba and Edinson Cavani to try and turn the tide but in the end there was nothing to separate these two team at full time on a low key derby day in West Yorkshire.

Full Time from Elland Road it’s Leeds United 0 Manchester United 0
